AR# 15339: 5.1i CORE Generator - XST synthesis fails because the XST executable cannot be found
5.1i CORE Generator - XST synthesis fails because the XST executable cannot be found
Keywords: COREGen, XST, 8b/10b, Encoder, Decoder, CAM, NGC
General Description: I am attempting to create an 8b/10b Encoder, 8b/10b Decoder, or CAM core using the Alliance software; however, the tool fails, and an error reports that the xst.exe file cannot be found.
This problem occurs because CORE Generator currently calls up the XST executable when the XST DLL should be used instead. The problem is that the EXE file is not included in the Alliance software package; because of this, XST-based cores will not work for Alliance customers until this is fixed.
